Web publishing platform player Squarespace is to create 100 new jobs in Dublin, the IDA revealed this morning.
The New York company’s platform allows anyone to easily create professional blogs, web pages, stores and galleries without touching a line of code. “We chose Dublin as our first location outside of New York City over many others in Europe,” said Anthony Casalena, founder and CEO of Squarespace. “Dublin offers us a friendly, young, and talented workforce in a vibrant centre city location. It’s the perfect choice for Squarespace.”
Squarespace’s all-in-one service provides hosting, content management, domain names, social integrations, e-commerce, and 24-hour customer support.
The Squarespace operation in central Dublin will serve Squarespace customers around the globe and will include a variety of customer care roles. Recruitment for positions at Squarespace has already begun.
IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary said IDA formed a division three years ago specifically tasked with finding high-growth companies, like Squarespace. “From our first contact with the firm in New York almost 12 months ago, we have been assisting Squarespace in their plan to open an office in Ireland. Squarespace will join a number of other IDA-backed internet companies in the Dublin area,” O’Leary explained.
